• Extract the upgrade scripts from the PingIntelligence upgrade package as explained in Common upgrade tasks section
  • Run the following command and stop ASE.
    # /<ASE installation path>/pingidentity/ase/bin/stop.sh -u <username> -p <password>
    For example:
    # /home/pi-user/pingidentity/ase/bin/stop.sh -u admin -p pswd
    If ASE is running as a service, then run the following command.
    # systemctl stop pi-ase.service
  • Make sure all the access logs are uploaded. Navigate to /<ASE 4.4.1 installation path>/pingidentity/ase/log and run the following command.
    $ ls -lrt | sed -r "s/(.+\s+.+\s+.+\s+.+\s+0\s+.+)//g" | grep "http\|decoy"

Complete the following steps on all the ASE nodes in a cluster to upgrade to upgrade ASE 4.4.1 to 5.0.

  1. Download the ASE 5.0 binary. Copy the binary to a temporary directory and extract it.
    # cp pi-api-ase-rhel-5.0.tar.gz ~/pi-tmp/
    # cd ~/pi-tmp/
    # tar -xvf pi-api-ase-rhel-5.0.tar.gz
  2. Navigate to ~/pi-tmp/pingidentity/upgrade/ase/ and copy the ASE upgrade script to the ~/pi-tmp/pingidentity/ase/util/ directory in the temporary directory.
    # cd ~/pi-tmp/pingidentity/upgrade/ase/
    # cp ase-upgrade.sh ~/pi-tmp/pingidentity/ase/util/
  3. Navigate to the /<ASE 4.4.1 installation path>/pingidentity/ase/config/ directory, and remove the existing ASE license from the directory.
  4. Copy the new PingIntelligence 5.0 license into /<ASE 4.4.1 installation path>/pingidentity/ase/config/ directory.
  5. Navigate to the ~/pi-tmp/pingidentity/ase/util/ directory and run the upgrade script.
    # cd ~/pi-tmp/pingidentity/ase/util/
    # ./ase-upgrade.sh <ASE 4.4.1 installation path>
    For example:
    # ./ase-upgrade.sh /home/pi-user/pingidentity/ase
    4.4.1 is not running
    Copying new binaries for ASE 5.0
    Upgrade to ASE 5.0 is successful
    Please start ASE using: /home/pi-user/pingidentity/ase/bin/start.sh
    If systemctl service present, run command: systemctl restart pi-ase.service 
    Note: The ase-upgrade.sh script upgrades the Balancer and Controller binaries in ASE.
  6. Run the following command and verify the successful upgrade of the ASE node.
    # /<ASE installation path>/pingidentity/ase/bin/cli.sh version
    For example:
    # /home/pi-user/pingidentity/ase/bin/cli.sh version
  7. Start ASE nodes in a cluster setup one after the other.
    # /<ASE installation path>/pingidentity/ase/bin/start.sh
    For example:
    # /home/pi-user/pingidentity/ase/bin/start.sh
    If ASE is running as a service, then run the following command.
    # systemctl start pi-ase.service
  8. Run the following command to check the status and verify the successful start of ASE node.
    # /<ASE installation path>/pingidentity/ase/bin/cli.sh status
    For example.
    # /home/pi-user/pingidentity/ase/bin/cli.sh status
Enter the following command and enable ABS on ASE node.
# pingidentity/ase/bin/cli.sh -u admin -p <password> enable_abs
